Observing Sessions/Star Parties/Meals for 2017

Observing sessions are scheduled on a Friday in mid-month, or Saturday if Friday is cancelled due to bad weather. They are usually held at a dark sky site near Pilling. Keep an eye on the website, Google Group and Twitter for a last minute Go or No-Go. Everyone welcome, a selection of the society's equipment will be available or bring your telescope and get help and advice on using it.
